A car has been found at the bottom of a driveway in Otown, New York, with its windows smashed.
Police say they believe the man was driving a stolen car when it hit the back of a police car.
The car was found on a property in the village of Otown on Monday morning, and police believe the suspect is responsible for the crash.
“The vehicle was found to have damage to the front and rear of the vehicle, which is consistent with a vehicle that was involved in an accident,” Otown Police Lt Mark Wysocki told ABC News.
The officer said the suspect has a criminal history and is believed to have stolen a car before.
Police have released surveillance video of the car.
“We have a suspect in custody, and we want the public to come forward if they see this vehicle,” Wysocksi said.
The Otown police officer who found the stolen car said the vehicle was not equipped with an airbag and it was possible the car was damaged by a fire.
“Our investigation shows that the car is not equipped to have an air bag, so I can’t speculate as to whether or not that vehicle has been involved in a crash,” the officer said.
“It is believed that the vehicle may have been involved with a traffic accident.”
